SAGE - (White Sage) 

History

Used by ancestors of the Native American lands White Sage was used to cleanse and purify. Tribes would use sage in ritual practices of clearing out negative , unwanted spirits and for purifying space to force bad energy to move out and asking for blessings to attract in. It is also known to release negative ions, repel bugs, kill bacteria, viruses,& fungi due to its antimicrobial properties.

No wonder it should be a new addition to your home life and especially during flu /covid season, its important to naturally keep the air around us free from harmful irritants. I tend to keep in mind, the saying that goes, "You can not heal in the same environment you got sick in." Whether its a negative home life filled with ; yelling, conflict, dark shadows , or the cold season coughs and sneezes that lingers in the air, sage is your best bet for its multipurpose uses.

How to Use

You can do this many ways , it just depends on what your using sage for and what kind. As with any spiritual practice like for clearing energy or a negative vibration. Praying before hand helps to provide protection and create a stronger intention for the use.. Repelling something like bugs, a prayer may not be necessary, though the choice is up to you.

-Set your intentions first.-

Speak out your intentions or visualize what you wish to accomplish. Speak it into reality so that it helps to really set it into action. Doing any spiritual practice for someone just starting out can be confusing and may not give you the best results if your intentions isn't set within you. Stepping in with doubt or fear can really throw yourself off. But with practice you will create your own way of doing things that work best for you and what your desiring.

Open your windows.

Its suggested when smudging to keep a window or door open to allow negative or stagnant energy to get pushed out. I personally dont think it has to be every time, but if its your first timer or cleaning your home top to bottom, defintely do so.

Light up your sage & begin smudging yourself first cus' chillee sometimes it be us causing trouble. Allowing the smoke to circulate around your body praying for the holy spirit to protect your mind, body, spirit and allow the smoke to act like a shield to cleanse and keep your aura safe from negativity.

Then move to one corner of a room or the front door and begin to walk around the perimeter blessing your home with a prayer , saying mantras, speaking over your home as its your sanctuary. I like to say my prayer asking Holy spirit to use this "spiritual tool" to bless, purify, and cleanse away negative energy, stagnant thoughts, feelings, and emotions that have been keeping me stagnant or in a low vibration from my home. I ask those of the most high to "Allow my space to be filled with love and purity as the negativity flows out and not return." 

When you'v smudged every room, you may feel led to finish where you first started or let the smoke burn for a while. If you chose to stop at a doorway, you may say a pray to " seal " it as an exit for negative energy so that only positive vibes and love may enter into your home. Now your done!

Close the windows and light an incense or Palo Santo to revive your space with calm relaxing scents that helps to invoke positive vibrations.

-Conclusion-

When I first started living on my own this was a must do practice for me. I felt it really set the vibe in my home, any time I knew someone would come over I sage them and my doorway. They probably thought I was crazy at first but over time they knew that my home was my peaceful place & so was I.

 Hi, I am the Owner of HearofWar Online Boutique. A Place where you can find art work, gifts, creations, and an resources for those that are looking to find healing in their pursuit of a healthier and wealthier life. I like to personally go by the name of Heartofwar the Artist- because for so long that was a nickname of mine as a painter and clothing designer doing art shows and pop ups around the City. But to tell you the truth, my name came from my journey into woman hood from dealing with many trials and tribulations of love and learning observing the ways of other people in relationships and work. Overcoming obstacles most would call & claim as their demise. But this isn't about a sad story, Its about finding Self Empowerment by using your past to fuel your future.

Much of life's hard knocks are set to attack our mental, physical, and financial health negatively. Many of us go on our missions in life to fulfill our dreams whether it’s towards love , our passions, money , success, or fame and realize, it isn't meant for the weak. Many give up and quit others keep pushing thru all the heart aches , disappointments, failures, and being discouraged. Yet the funny thing is, once you stop focusing on your circumstances and elevate into higher acceptance , out of all the ugliness ,beautiful story emerges. Each of us has a story to tell, & all are one of a kind.

I hope to one day share my own story , more in depth and  in hopes I could help someone else.. But until then I am on a mission to bring the information, the stories, and solutions, to one platform  to help empower others to keep fighting thru each day with a HeartofWar.

No matter what , its the inner knowing of the God within and truly becoming a creator of your own life that paints your reality. You were born with all the gifts you need to have a successful life. Each of us is born into wealth and into abundance mindset whether we see it today or not. Its really up to us to not allow outside negativity to stop us. Just believe in you &

Trust that God will never let down any of his soldiers. 

Some missions are harder than others, but it doesn't mean its impossible. Much of the time its the lack of resources or circumstances that distracts us. Sometimes its not opening your eyes wide enough. That's why I chose to express thru fashion and art. To let someone out their know the bigger the challenge, the harder you may fall sometimes but it doesnt mean you should give up, just change your perspective. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
